CranioSacral Therapy is a gentle, non-invasive modality that seeks to find and treat restrictions throughout the body’s CranioSacral systems. Restrictions within these systems can lead to tension patterns or affect the functioning of all bodily systems including the musculoskeletal, endocrine, cardio-respiratory, gastrointestinal, lymphatic, immune and reproductive systems.

“What are we to do about resistance? Treat it with respect. Resistance is not to be overpowered. Resistances are to be enlisted in the process towards healing and growth.”

What is CranioSacral Therapy?
CranioSacral Therapy is a gentle, non-invasive modality that seeks to find and treat restrictions throughout the body systems. Restrictions within the CranioSacral system can lead to tension patterns, restrictions or affect the functioning of all bodily systems including the musculoskeletal, endocrine, cardio-respiratory, gastrointestinal, lymphatic, immune and reproductive systems.
How does CranioSacral Therapy Work?
Through various assessment tools, your CranioSacral Therapist can globally assess your body and CranioSacral system and find the “primary” restrictions or “root causes” of issues. Over time our body may compensate around particular restrictions in order to keep us functioning well. When the body can no longer compensate or the restrictions are so great that it overcomes the body’s compensatory strategies, symptoms occur.
A natural progression of CranioSacral Therapy is a process called SomatoEmotional ® Release (SER). At times of high stress or emotional sensitivity the body may retain the imprint of emotion in the tissues of the body. SomatoEmotional Release is a process of assisting the body in integrating these emotions. Your CranioSacral Therapist may incorporate tools such as therapeutic imagery and dialogue to assist in this process.
